I used the Simulation Add-In to visualize the contact area between two parts that touch each other. I can visualize the contact area through the Contact Visualization Plot function but I haven't found a way to create a sketch from that area.
I wanted to create a sketch for a gasket with the exact shape of the contact area. Is there a better way to do this easily?
I'd do this in the assembly mode. You can edit the part you want to project the surface on to and then when sketching on the appropriate surface you could convert entities from the other part (gasket). I'd suggest that you break any dependencies back to the other part though.
